Jason was friendly, good English

Some shopping, the driver was the best in China so far, peaceful driving despite the chaos. Despite the holiday in China, and the huge amount of people in the sites, both the driver and the guide made it possible to see it all. If you have 2 days perhaps you can take the doubledecker bus for a good overview of the city instead.

Very good taste of what the city has to offer if you have limited time

I enjoyed the tour as I was traveling alone and had only one day available. The tour guide , Jason, was very friendly and informative and spoke English well. He was adaptable and tried to give us as much time as possible at each sightseeing stop. It made my stay in Shanghai worthwhile ! Thank you!

Enjoyable tour.

Lucas was a very knowledgeable, helpful, pleasant young man. Our driver was also considerate and a skilful driver. Shanghai was a pleasant surprise. The gardens in particular were awesome. I felt pressured to buy after the tea ceremony (which was wonderful), the silk factory, the jade gardens etc. which left me feeling uncomfortable.
